DIVING WITH US

The Southern Sport is liveaboard operating diving tours around the best of Mexico's Pacific waters. This means unforgettable week-long cruises around Socorro aimed mainly at experienced Divers and shorter trips to experience the wonder of the Great White Sharks of Guadalupe Island.

Southern Sport's emphasis on safety is evidenced by the boat's stability in the water, and the provision of individual lost diver devices, mandatory dive insurance on all its liveaboard charters and a re-compression chamber on board its sister ship Sea Escape.

Photographers will note the Dive Deck's camera table and camera rinse tank, as well as the many charging points around the liveaboard vessel. This liveaboard will bring you closer to the underwater world with big animal encounters and will leave you with unforgettable memories.
